ATLANTA (February 22, 2016) – Zywie, a medtech company focused on the early detection and precise remote monitoring of patients with cardiovascular disease, has been named one of the Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state’s leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry.
TAG’S Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based technology companies for their innovation, financial impact, and their efforts at spreading awareness of Georgia’s technology initiatives throughout the U.S. and globally. TAG will recognize this prestigious group at the 2016 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 17, 2016, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.
“We are honored to be recognized as a TAG Top 40 Innovative Technology Company leader for our innovative ZywiePro Solution,” said Latha Ganeshan President and CEO at Zywie. “The benefits of our ZywiePro solution are helping physicians take on the increasing demands of CVD in our country while providing better patient care.”
Zywie is revolutionizing cardiac remote monitoring with its innovative solution that improves patient care and value to the physician.
About 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year–that’s 1 in every 4 deaths. With the growing number of CVD patients every year, a better system needed to be created to not only support these ever increasing numbers but also to provide a better tool for physicians and their staff.
Zywie helps physicians efficiently and accurately diagnose and treat their patients’ many heart- related problems. ZywiePro, the next-generation cardiac remote monitoring solution, leverages mobile and cloud technology to facilitate detection of cardiovascular arrhythmias in patients in a more timely, accurate and cost-effective manner than alternative monitoring solutions allow. By giving physicians detailed diagnostic insight into the cardiovascular health of their patients, ZywiePro empowers physicians to provide more personalized and effective patient care.
“The 2016 Top 40 finalists are an elite group of innovators who represent the very best of Georgia’s Technology community,” said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. “The 2016 Top 40 finalists are shining examples of what makes our state such a hotbed for technology and we applaud them for standing out as leaders in Georgia’s technology community.”
This year’s Top 40 Companies were selected from among over 100 applications submitted by companies from across Georgia. Companies selected for the "Top 40" will be showcased in an exhibition at The 2016 Georgia Technology Summit.
"An extraordinary number of truly innovative technology companies participated in this year’s Top 40 competition, demonstrating the depth and breadth of Georgia's technology community," said Dennis Zakas, managing partner of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, CEO of Zinc., and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “In fact, based on the quality of the contestants, we could have had a 'Top 60' without losing a beat."
